Brian, we discussed this test case offlist last month (with a min-width 
media query).


In IE10 preview 1, visual values were behaving as logical values. Now in 
IE10 preview 2, this has been corrected. If I was to be able to use this 
gradient and keyword,

   linear-gradient(start, blue, white 50%, green 100%);

as a narrowed the viewport, the gradient would change to running from 
visual left (logical start) to visual right (logical end) to running 
from visual top (logical start) to visual bottom (logical end).

To say that you have never heard of start, end, before, or after used 
with linear gradients until now is false since this is what I mentioned 
to you offlist over a month ago.
